Waiting has been a theme in my blog posts lately, probably because it’s often a theme in my life. 😊 I shared a playlist last week, and today I have a list of Bible verses for all of us who find ourselves in a waiting season. You know I love some good declarations, especially scriptural declarations, and this is a great list of verses to pray and declare as you wait on the Lord for his promises and instruction.

Here are 33 verses to meditate on while you wait:
